“For a perfectly tender and crusty steak, brothers Bryan and Michael Voltaggio salt their meat up to 12 hours before and let it sit, uncovered, in the refrigerator. This step seasons the meat to its core and pulls out moisture for a better sear.”
It’s easy and incredibly delicious! Serve in a crusty bun… or all by themselves. There is a trick, however, to achieving perfectly grilled sausages. The key is a simple disposable foil pan, foil container, or even foil packet.
“Bacon is one of the ingredients that I love best about this potato salad. And I’m not talking about wimpy little bacon bits here. I’m talking about thick-cut, smoky, wonderful bacon, chopped into random bite-size pieces.” A dad kind of potato salad!
This Hot Slaw recipe with Bacon Dressing is a quick and easy side dish. And a perfect complement to heftier favorites like pork, sausages, or, of course, chicken. Whether it be fried, grilled... or pulled!
